“Loving every single day of my life” – Flaviyake
LA based singer-songwriter/music producer, Flaviyake [flah-vee-uh-ke] is known for reinventing herself in every new music video. She was born during an earthquake in Chișinău, the largest city and capital of Moldova. At the age of six, she studied flute and piano at the Sergey Rachmaninov School of Music in Chișinău and wrote her first song when she was 10 years old.
As a Grammy Recording Academy and NARIP member, Flaviyake has established a career writing songs, in both English and Russian, for herself and other artists.
Her name is a hybrid of her Latin name Flavia (meaning ‘golden, blonde’) and Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake, her favourite designer.
In 2013, Flaviyake started recording various songs with her brother, RK, as producer. From these sessions, ‘Celestial Cutie’, ‘Turn Around / The Magic Hit’, ‘Because I’m a Doll’ and ‘Electronic Boy’ were released independently as singles. All four singles were played on British online radio stations and ‘Because I’m a Doll’ was aired for the first time on BBC6 Music Radio by Tom Robinson in February, 2014. This was followed later in 2014 by the release of her ‘Barcode Puppets’ single supported by a video created in collaboration with Moscow producers CJ Slick and El Ray at Sound Evolution. At the moment Flaviyake continues to produce and collaborate with musicians and artists all around the world.
